Manchester United have sold the naming rights of their Carrington training ground to Aon for an estimated £150 million.

The eight-year deal with Aon – the club’s current shirt sponsors – starts in July, and the ground will be known as the “Aon Training Complex”.

 The agreement will mean the American insurance company also have the right to display its logo on United’s training kit for friendly and competitive domestic fixtures, while they will become the club’s presenting partners for overseas tours, starting with the trip to the Far East this summer. Aon will provide the club with business expertise in return.

 With this just the latest in a number of sponsorship deals the club have struck up of late, there has been some concern among fans that United’s owners, the Glazer family, will look to sell the lucrative naming rights for Old Trafford.

 United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, however, insisted on Sunday that “Old Trafford will not be sold”.
